Insult to injury

Well finally get my truck back up and running after 4 months of fing around. Send my first logs to Johan and it's looking like I now have an exhaust leak on the drivers side. After all the garbage Dale Adams put me through it's looking like he used the kooks gasket despite me telling him on numerous occasions to use frigging OEM!. Back to the shop it goes... I can't win with this thing.

PWR 393, Procharged D-1 @ 6 psi.

Pretty sure it is written somewhere I am not allowed to have my truck back for more thatn 24hrs before it has to go back to the shop.. I am very seriously considering lawyers at this point. They charged me for a tune they didn't do and did dyno runs on a vehicle with an aftermarket cam and no tune (bet that was really good for it) and now this.. Oh and I paid 3700 for the install.. Yah quality place that is...

I don't care it's not going back to the shop. I am going to drive it with an exhaust leak. I haven't had wheels for 4 months! I can't stand it for another minute lol.

On my lotus I burnt out an o2 sensor because of an exhaust manifold leak. computer kept thinking it was running lean and added more fuel. Jeep might not be as picky though
